Tacoma Goodwill sent us a release regarding sad news that has hit the agency. Help out if you can.

TACOMA - Tacoma Goodwill today mourned the tragic loss of the wife of an employee who was found deceased in the Lakewood apartment fire yesterday. The agency has established a fund to help the family
 
Eduardo Vilog's wife, Aida, 63, was lost in the Village Apartments fire. Eduardo, 73, was working at Goodwill's production facility when the blaze occurred. He has been with the agency since 1998. Tacoma Goodwill established the Eduardo Vilog Family Fund with Columbia Bank to assist with immediate needs, including funeral-related expenses.
 

"Our hearts and prayers are with Eduardo and his family as they go through this tragedy, which is especially hard to take at this time of year," said Terry A. Hayes, Tacoma Goodwill CEO, who noted the agency has made counseling available to all its employees. "We want them to know they have friends here who will help them through this horrible time."
 
A second employee was also a resident of the apartment complex and was at work at the time of the blaze. Goodwill is supporting the work of The Red Cross with whatever emergency requests for clothes and household items are needed for all the families the fire impacted.
 
"We will offer all the help possible to support our employees, and help them and other victims through this tragedy," Hayes said.
